absolutely loved this small trail shrubs views kids could easily keep up dogs had a great time October weather was beautiful.

Really cool trail and it was a good one for my kids. My wife and I only had to carry one of the toddlers halfway through! Go just before sunset and you will see the beauty of Colorado. Build your own rock monument too!

it was ok. convenient but way too many rules...

Great way to spend the morning coming from the South Shore Trail. Plenty of turns and visual surprises along with some deer. The cutoff trail was a bit adventurous, but that is all part of the fun. Wish I had time to do more of this park’s trails!

This is a nice easy trail. Great for a walk or for just spending some time out in nature by the lake. We went on a weekday and we only saw 5 other people on the trail. Beautiful sites of the lake. No trees, although you can find shade.

Main trail was level and paved, good for bicycles. But we are hikers and we quickly got bored. So we explored the various side trails which were much more interesting. Saw a tree full of ospreys and nests, trout in the river, shady single-track trails, various waterfowl including a little cormorant... We recommend the trails that parallel the main trail if you are a hiker

The trails are fairly well marked. We were 4 hikers and a dog in a place where everyone was mountain biking. There are some areas that are full of loose shale-type rock that might be difficult for dogs. There is no shade, which was fine during a pleasant December day. It would be really hot during the summer.

Beautiful scenery! I couldn't find the exact trail I intended to hike, but just picked a trail and started to follow it. I'm so glad I did. It was a pleasant surprise around each bend. I passed a 'pet cemetery' where people mark stones for there deceased pets. It was a beautiful site to see. So many people seem to visit this exact place and it is so well kept. There were amazing views of the reservoir, and high desert. I would recommend checking out the Pueblo Reservoir to anyone!

Medium difficulty due to loose rock; wear hiking shoes if you have them.

I almost stepped on a rattlesnake where the grass had grown up on the trail a bit. Know what to do for bites before you hike here. I had talked to a park ranger before and he insisted there were no rattlers but my dirty shorts say otherwise.

Very relaxing ride to calm my PTSD.

This trail wasn't particularly difficult. There are some cool areas with small canyons. It's not very well labeled and it's quite easy to get turned around, so make sure you get and understand a map, or the alltrails app, which saved my bacon after I got turned around.

Its a great afternoon hike, sunny but you get to see a lot of lizards

Easy to find trailhead and very difficult to get lost. Early mornings are best to beat the heat and no shade - wear sunscreen. Public restrooms near trail too.

This is a great hike.. Very little shade, bring lots of water.

Awesome, awesome, awesome.

Drove out on to see the beauty of the lake and Arkansas River. Enjoyed the view with the wild rabbits crossing the roads. Best to use a truck on these dirt roads since the pits are deep.

Was a clear day but by mid morning things heated up quickly. Nice clean trail, not busy mid-week. Able to maintain a good pace while enjoying natural setting and views. Recommended for those who desire a doable distance with moderatel effort.

Nice ride along the Arkansas River.

The description and map are a little misleading. This is a network of trails that covers the area and some cross is a few spots. There is no shade so plan accordingly.
